I just uploaded a color version of "The Eye Creatures". Instead of going into the Feature Films collection where I hoped it would go, it went into Open Source Movies. I'm new to this uploading stuff, so I would like to know what I did wrong. I MAKE NO CLAIMS THAT I KNOW WHAT THE HELL I'M DOING.

If you upload a film it always ends up in the open source-category, once you put a link to you're film on board the moderators can move it to the feature film-category.

Woo hoo! Thanks for this! BTW, in my experience it takes a few hours for IA to get new uploads into the Feature Films section. If it isn't here by the next morning, post in the Forums or use the 'Report errors' link on the items page.

I checked my work and downloaded the the file. It plays ok on either the Nero player or the divx player but you have to drag and drop the file on the screen of the player for it to work. The file was run through the divx converter before uploading and came out as an mkv file. Plays fine otherwise

The Internet Archive can't produce derivatives of movies in the open-source Matroska (.mkv) file format. Windows users can play Matroska files in GOM player; Mac users can use the Perian plugin to play them in QuickTime. Linux users (and others) can use the VLC media player.
